The first person I visited during my short trip to Hamburg was Lisa, whom I already photographed in her apartment two years ago (with the same stool!).

This is Wibke Deertz in her living room on Torstraße, Mitte.
Marlene and James are a fashionable couple living in Prenzlauer Berg, her being a fashion journalist writing for Sueddeutsche and ZEIT, him being a talented designer creating classic clothing for men and women.
My dear friend Florian owns the prettiest bookshelf I’ve ever seen. This is not only because of the design, done by Toon Welling, but also because of the color coordination and the small objects placed in-between the books. That said, Florian himself is an ambitious freelancing author, managing editor for Asymptote, a journal for literature in translation, and the guest prose editor for Sand Journal, but also one of the greatest mixtape editors of all time – you might remember the terrific tape he did for our 5th birthday last year. And above all, after we finished the portrait he prepared an excellent omelette with cilantro for me.
I’ve known Kirsten for quite some time (and have also already taken her portrait, although I like this new one a lot more), but it took some effort to find a time to meet her for this photo.
